So like many others on Celtics Blog, I think the best course of action if we cannot trade for Love would be to blow it up and trade Rondo. So I went to ESPN trade machine and found something that may possibly work.
Jameer Nelson (expiring contract)
#4 pick (ORL)
#12 pick (ORL)
Marcus Smart (#6) / Jameer Nelson
Avery Bradley / Nik Stauskus or Gary Harris (#12)
John Henson / Joel Embiid (#4)
Rondo / Moore
Oladipo / Afflalo
Harkless / Lamb
Harris / Nicholson
Vucevic / O'Quinn / Maxiell
I honestly do not know if this is realistic, but it seems pretty fair for all sides to me, and hey a man can dream! The only hang up I can think of is if Rondo doesn't want to stay in Orlando, which is entirely possible but they have a decent young roster with room to grow. A simpler version of this trade would be Nelson, #4, and #12 for Rondo, but I think the Celts would prefer Henson to another rookie in this situation. He is a great shotblocker and still very young but has some NBA experience. Jeff Green would then be on the block most likely, not sure what he could get in return by himself. So what do you guys think??
